We praise you, LORD, for your wisdom and guidance. You make known to us our paths and direct us with love, patience and compassion. You make mountains move for our sake. You provide shade from the heat of the day and light in the darkest times. We rejoice as we journey together, trusting in you for all our needs.
I take your hand today, LORD, and thank you for…
Lead us, so we may follow. Call to us, so we may answer. Carry us, so we may truly rest. Embrace us, so we may feel your peace. Lift us, so we may see your glory.
We hear your voice calling to us in the wilderness. You invite us to come to you, to return, and to receive your grace. We remember the words of wise Elders you have sent to us. They told us to place our trust in you, and that you are gracious and merciful. We run to you and feel you reach out to embrace us. Your mercy surrounds us.
Great Architect, you are always with us and hear our prayers. You give us the words to say and the strength, courage, and favour to ask for what we want. Thank you for restoring us with the newness of life and releasing us from broken-down dreams.
Loving Divine Family,
We gather at your Beautiful Gate with thanksgiving. We enter your sacred prayer space, your holy sanctuary, singing songs of praise on this Palm Sunday. We celebrate this Liturgy of the Palms in your presence. Blessed are you, Jesus. Only you are worthy to be called our LORD and Saviour. Only your love knows no bounds.
We feel relief as we enter your sacred prayer space to find you waiting for us. We hear your voice as you speak your truth to us. Your words are thunder in the mountains, water on the sand, birds in flight, and wind from the four corners. Creation sings your praises for all you do for us, for you have written our names in your book as your beloved children.
